Limitless Skills Series

Welcome to the ISA Limitless Skills Series at Home. From Monday 25 January students will have access to 60 Challenges over the course of 6 weeks. 

    

We are happy to bring you a newly revamped Limitless Skills Series, powered by the TopYa! video-based platform. Through the TopYa! app, students will be challenged to various physical activities. The Series is here to supplement schools’ at home learning and ensure that children are able to stay active and competitive from anywhere. 

Primary and secondary aged children practice the challenges given to them each week, then submit their best video using a mobile device to receive personal coaching feedback from the TopYa! team of experienced virtual coaches. Points are earned for each video submitted, leading to climbing leaderboards and winning prizes!

In autumn of 2020, hundreds of students competed in the virtual competition, completing over 1,300 hours of physical activity! This national campaign challenges students across the UK to stay active while challenging themselves and others via various physical activity challenges.

What is the Limitless Skills Series

ISA’s Limitless Skills Series is a fun, engaging national activity campaign for kids across the UK to get active. Utilising the cutting edge video-based platform powered by TopYa!, the Series is meant to be a new way to engage today’s kids, who are always using digital platforms on mobiles, tablets and computers, and transforming their time spent on-screen into time spent physically active. The Series runs for 6 weeks with access to 60 challenges. 

Primary and Secondary aged children can join the Limitless Skills Series starting the beginning of November with FREE active challenges being set via videos within a special version of the TopYa! Active App. Children of all ages can practise the challenge, then submit their best performance video using their mobile device to receive FREE personal coaching feedback from our team of experienced virtual coaches, earning points for each video submitted, climbing leaderboards and winning prizes!

What are Skills?

Skills are challenges developed by childcare and physical education experts. Each child can access a skill that comes with a tutorial video and written description, call to action challenge and feedback from real virtual coaches. Each skill ranges in ability and interest levels, so the content is applicable for all Primary and Secondary students. If you are interested in developing your own contact, please reach out at hello@topya.com

What are Head to Head Challenges? 

Head to Head Challenges are a student’s world of free play. Any child can submit their own challenge or take on that of another user in the app. Each video is reviewed to ensure the submission is safe and appropriate. Once the video goes head to head it is scored by the team of Virtual Coaches. Users can earn additional points and the chance to claim Head to Head victory! 

How does Virtual Coaching work?

Once a child practices and then uploads a video of themselves performing a particular challenge in the app, they will submit it for approval from our trained team of virtual coaches. Virtual coaches provide upbeat feedback, and also act as a moderator to ensure that all content uploaded is appropriate and does not give away personally identifying information.

How does TopYa! protect the safety and privacy of children? 

TopYa! has completed both GDPR Data Controller and Data Processor audits, receiving a Green rating for each. TopYa!’s Privacy Policy complies with the standards of GDPR. TopYa! has also received certification with the Privacy Shield Framework overseen by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA).

GDPR/COPPA Compliant

The TopYa! Active app is committed to online safety and meets rigorous COPPA and GDPR safeguarding standards. No one can communicate within the app. All children can do to communicate with one another is give each other a virtual ‘high-five’, which functions like a social media ‘like’. Video content is suitable for young people of all ages and abilities, with regular submissions from National Governing Bodies of Sport.
